With this file

/tmp$ cat tmp.Rnw
<<figureexample, fig=TRUE, include=FALSE, width=4.2, height=4.6>>=
v = seq(0, 60i, length=1000)
plot(abs(v)*exp(v), type="l", col="Royalblue")

This command

/tmp$ R --vanilla CMD Sweave tmp.Rnw
Output file:  tmp.tex

does not produce a figure

/tmp$ ls *figureexample*
ls: cannot access *figureexample*: No such file or directory

/tmp$ R --version
R Under development (unstable) (2014-02-18 r65029) -- "Unsuffered Consequences"

but this does

/tmp$ R --vanilla CMD Sweave --pdf tmp.Rnw
Output file:  tmp.pdf

and so did

$ Rrel --version|head -n 1
R version 3.0.2 Patched (2014-01-02 r64626) -- "Frisbee Sailing"
